Browns | Brian Hoyer gets huge boost

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 13:27:12 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed 23 of his 40 pass attempts for 322 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 12 win against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Sure, the interceptions were worrisome, but he recorded his second straight 300-yard game, and third in four outings. He received a huge boost with Josh Gordon back in the mix. The yardage totals should continue, and with Gordon back, a lot of those offensive drives for field goals should turn into touchdowns.

Browns | Brian Hoyer struggles in loss

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 18:36:10 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed 20 of his 50 pass attempts for 330 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 11 game against the Houston Texans. He is the fourth NFL quarterback since 1988 to at throw at least 50 passes with a complete percentage of 40 percent or lower.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer still posted respectable numbers for FantasyScore owners, but he is going to have to tighten up his completion percentage and get back in the win column or fans will be whispering for Johnny Manziel.

Browns | Brian Hoyer probable

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 15:01:14 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (glute) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5, and is probable for Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is a new addition to the injury report today, but he will play in the team's Week 10 game. Hoyer will cost $4,000 in FantasyScore this week, but you can probably find better options by spending just a bit more.

Browns | Brian Hoyer praised by OL

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 12:31:59 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer has shown a lot of confidence this year, according to offensive lineman Joe Thomas. Thomas also said that Hoyer doesn't get overwhelmed and he doesn't expect that to change this week against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has been a decent fantasy quarterback this year, but the Bengals have only allowed 10 passing touchdowns so far. It might be best to stay away from Hoyer this week.

Browns | Johnny Manziel could play in Week 8

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 11:05:31 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could see some action in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders, according to head coach Mike Pettine. However, Pettine said Monday, Oct. 20, that QB Brian Hoyer is still firmly entrenched as the team's starting quarterback. Hoyer completed a career-low 39 percent of his attempts against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7 and threw for 215 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. He has completed only 41.3 percent of his passes in the last two weeks. Pettine blamed Hoyer's poor performance on the team's inability to run and set up play-action.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns face a great matchup in the Raiders this weekend. It's a perfect chance for Hoyer to bounce back from his previous rough outings, but if he doesn't, there's probably a good chance that Manziel is starting in Week 9.

Browns | Brian Hoyer disputes report on contract

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 14:09:40 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer disputed a report that he would not re-sign with the team if QB Johnny Manziel was still with the team. "It couldn't be further from the truth," Hoyer said. "There's no accurate information. I've never talked to that guy in my life. From here on out, my main focus is Jacksonville. You guys want to talk about that, you can talk to the guys upstairs or my agent, Joe Linta. I think some of you know. From here on out, I'm on to Jacksonville."

Browns | Brian Hoyer coy about future with team

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:56:54 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer was coy in answering questions about whether he would re-sign with the team if QB Johnny Manziel is still on the roster. "I don't think I need to say anything more than I'm from Cleveland, and this is where I want to be," Hoyer said. But I'm also a competitor, and I want to be somewhere where I'm playing."
